thanks and biopsy is over

I had the biopsy today, but probably won't get the results for two weeks. The endoscopy unit was very busy and I had to wit an hour before getting in the procedure room. Then they put me in the room, hooked up to the IV and monitors, and I waited for f an hour while I heard the Dr. and nurses lahughing and chatting as they worlked in the next room on someone else. i got so bored that I held my breath a few times to make the respiration line on the monitor flat line. The Dr's and nurses were very nice to me, I told the Dr about the spot of blood but he didn't seeme to concerned. I was conscious and saw these white spots on the screen and saw him biopsy one of them. Hopefully it is just scar tissue, Thank you to everyone who responded to my panicattack last night I had had nothing to eat all day except jello and i think my mindwas wobbly like jello. Your prayers and wise words really really help.

Oh Debbie about your holding your breath to make a flat line! That is too funny! I'm glad to see you've kept your sense of humor through all this, it's not easy for sure.

It sounds like everything was fine (though boring) with the biopsy. I'm hoping for good results from the pathology. And I'm glad the DR didn't seem concerned about the bleeding - still it's always good to tell them about stuff like that.

I hope you're feeling a little more relaxed tonight... why not do something special to pamper yourself tomorrow, you deserve it!

It'll Be Scar Tissue

I think they would've said something more concerning if they didn't think it was just scar tissue. I like you idea of holding the breath--I mean, there are times when you just have to do something to break the waiting and delays. Now just try to relax until that scar tissue biopsy comes in. I agree a special treat is in order--and not more jello! Either some retail therapy or a hot fudge sundae... and no more panics allowed! See-you wasted a good one.

Now let me cheer you up a bit

with a funny story. You know I'm happy from yesterday--at least not feeling bad. Well, I knew I'd have to get into an exam gown and they have short sleeves so I took along an ace-wrap style tube I had to help my elbow swelling and put that on to cover the elbow scar. This is an example of loigical thinking. The RN practitioner asked about it and I said that since my oncologist was only an oncologist and not a blood-and-gore doctor I didn't want him to see the scar so I covered it up so he wouldn't have to look at it, just being an oncologist. She started roaring with laughter and must've told him because naturally he HAD to look at it. It's odd but I think of my primary care internal medicine as an "everything" doctor and the specialists as "only orthopedics" or "only ophthalmolgists" and not as full doctors. I think my social worker/therapist understands me--Ihope.

I loved the hold your breath story. Someone should write a book about all the things we could do while waiting. I'm so glad that the biopsy is over for you. I too think that it is scar tissue.
I like Ellen's idea of celebrating with a treat or retail spending.

I love your story. I think that most of us have had panic attacks through our experiences. One year after my surgery I had a series of them. I thought that I was dying many times. Hopefully, you will get an all clear soon!! Hang in there.
